Trading selfies is something that we all do. Literally, the Internet is flooded with tons of selfies and some are leaked with zero intentions of ever going public. If you’re looking to trade nudes with someone and you’re doing so in a haphazard was then you’re possibly putting yourself in jeopardy of future problems.
WTF am I talking about?
Well, trading nudes can become a real problem if done incorrectly.
Think about it for a minute…
It can impact your love life, personal life, your job, friendships, self-confidence and so much more. Taking an unplanned and chaotic or sporadic approach is not only senseless, but also dangerous.
Today I’ll be sharing with you all the reasons why I believe trading nudes in a public forum or open medium is a bad idea. Additionally, I’ll be sharing recommendations on how to trade them in a safer and more secure manner.
Three Main Reasons Why Trading Nudes Publicly Is Unsafe
If you’re the type that likes to take selfies and share them and trade them daily, then chances are that you’ve had the urge to take some explicit pics and fire those back and forth to some people.
If you’ve done so, then I’m going to tell you to refrain from doing so from this point forward. Here’s why you might want to think twice about sending the explicit DMs via open social media and simple SMS or MMS messaging.
Not Secure Enough
The first reason why you shouldn’t be sending these pics is that they’re just not secure enough. Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, whatever other social media platform you’re using – none of them are truly secure.
They are public platforms that billions of people use. The hacking skills of some of these users are insane and the chances of that photo ending up in someone else’s hands are pretty high.
Against Their Policy
I’d also like to mention that many of the mainstream social media platforms have a strict policy against sharing or trading nude photos and if you do, they not only consider this a breach of terms but some states make look as it being illegal.
My advice would be to NOT send that nude selfie via any social media even if done privately.
Out Of Your Control
When you trade nudes with someone, you’re essentially giving them the opportunity to do whatever the heck they want to do with the product. Think of all the nude Snapchat accounts and nude Snapchatters that have had their information and private snaps leaked all because they shared on a public platform?
It’s out of control and once it’s in someone else’s hands it’s no longer in your power or control. Be ready and prepared for the worst in that case.
What are your options if you want to avoid a serious problem publically? well, you’ve got a few options actually. Using a dating site that’s safe and secure is the only way that you should be sharing or trading nude photos and videos with anyone.
The reason I suggest using these sex “date” websites is that most of them (that are legit) are more secure than Fort Knox. It’s their duty to protect your information and keep your content safe as well as secure. That’s what you’re paying them for, right?
Now, if you’re looking to trade selfies, you can instead think about using secure video chat technology that Fling and other premium dating networks have in place. This technology helps keep your communication secure without opening it up to be shared publically. In other words, you stream versus download.
I guess what I’m trying to tell you to do is put an end to the trading of nudes and join a network where people care about one another and their sex partners well-being. The only other route would be to hire an escort (just not one from that crappy Yesbackpage site) in which case you wouldn’t need to trade nudes, you just meet for sex and call it a day. However, I strongly advise that you not do that unless it’s a last resort.
Take a closer look at some of the sites and mobile apps that I’ve recommended. Read the reviews, then take action based on your gut instinct after you’ve done some research. Whatever you do, don’t keep sending nudes to random people on Instagram and Facebook. You will regret it, I promise you will for sure!
